    My father is very strict, he's been annoying me so much lately, and I feel bad saying this, but he expects me the moment I walk through the door to be adamant into starting the washing up immediately, and for example when I do finish he gives me another chore. He keeps insulting me all the time degrading me , calling me a baby you should know better?! When I answer back he gives me the glare and if looks could kill.... its so depressing. I fight the urge to roll my eyes, its so infuriating, I really am exhausted. I would appreciate any advice thank you.

    Oh, are you planning to move out to uni?
    Well, parents should never insult their children- being strict is one thing but insulting them is taking it too fat. Don't take it too heart!

    So you don't have long until you move out, if you do move out
    No worries, but seriously, if you take things to heart you'd turn out like an emotional mess like me so just dont overthink whatever your parents say, its not worth it really
